Mosaico romano di Lod

Guided tours and educational workshops on the occasion of the exhibition a Menagerie of Wonders

From 17 October, for the duration of exhibition visitors can not only admire the mosaic close-up and gain insight into the mosaic and its techniques, they will also be able to take part in guided tours or educational workshops organised by Artsystem (booking required for both).

In an area of the exhibition reserved for educational activities, a special space will be dedicated to the craft of making mosaics, thanks to the collaboration of the Venetian firm Orsoni Mosaici srl – Gruppo Trend Spa – and the mosaic restorer Alessandra Costa. In a hands-on approach to the craft tools and the stone and glass tesserae, visitors will be able to understand the features that determine their various decorative uses.

Primary schoolchildren and students from middle schools will be able to try their hand – with various levels of difficulty – at this art with such a rich ancient history and great decorative and expressive potential. As in the past, the real and fantastic animals of the Menagerie of Wonders will intrigue and be a source of great enjoyment. During the guided tours various themes will be explored, such as the possible interpretations of the figures depicted in the mosaic, the history of the city of Lod, where the site was discovered, the delicate, tricky operation of removing the mosaic, and its long travels and return to Israel.

Visitors who wish to take part in the guided tours and workshops are required to book by calling the secretary’s office (toll-free 800 662 477 – Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9 am to 1 pm) or by emailing artsystem@artsystem.it.
